All Out For Health and Education!

After 8 years of providing ADO Encounters in the form of animal parties, animal experiences and park events for thousands of children, young people and adults across hundreds of venues, ADO have announced they will now be concentrating solely and fully on their health and education services going forward. It has been a tough choice to make, as ADO set the standards for professional and licensed animal encounters that have been hugely popular across London and the South East during their time. Now the business has matured and grown and is now an important industry leader in alternative healthcare and education. The ambitions of the company means that we simply can't do everything! 

More Professional Counselling from ADO

Our Spring Workshops are close to being revealed, but in the meantime as part of our programmes for our existing Mini-Explorers Preschool Outdoor Nursery Parents, we shall be running a workshop entitled 'Promoting Positive Mental Health' on Friday 23rd February at our main ADO Office in Welling Town Centre from 10am until 12 Midday. The course will be run by our BACP professional trained counsellor, Jenny Maydon. The workshop costs just £20 for our existing Preschool parents.

Taylor Wins For Number 5

A big well done to Taylor Thomas, who becomes ADO's 5th Jack Petchey winner. Taylor is one of ADO's Young Leaders and has been helping in many areas of the business since taking on that role. She is a great all rounder who can adapt herself to many of the roles required at ADO. Taylor has gained valuable work experience working as part of the ADO support team for many events over the last couple of years and is a valued member of the ADO team. She was voted by her peers for many reasons, but primarily for her kind, committed, helpful mentoring, always with a big smile across her face at all times. Her prize money will be put towards the Low Ropes equipment we purchased to give children and young people a great opportunity to learn new adventure and physical skills. Well done Taylor! 

Best Alternative Healthcare Services Provider 2018

For the second year running, The ADO Therapy team have picked up the prize of annual winners in the GHP Social Care Awards. This year, we are double winners in London and South-East for, 'Best Alternative Healthcare Services Provider' and 'The GHP Excellence Award For Animal Therapy'. This is a tremendous achievement for a small social enterprise and highlights the progress we make every year with our provision, offering our unique services to a wide range of the community, individuals, families and professionals.

Professional Counselling

How many companies provide first class professional workshops for the parents or carers of the children at their Preschool Nursery?

Kallum's Good For Number 6

Hot on the heels of our recent winner, Kallum Goodchild becomes our 6th Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner. Kallum is one of our ADO Mentors and another committed young person who helps out in many areas. I'm sure Kallum is an entrepreneur in the making, as our first memories of him helping was at a fund raising event nearly four years ago, when he was a lot smaller, but he built his own selling stall and sold refreshments and snacks raising money for ADO. He has matured into a bright, helpful and always willing member of the Mentors team, especially during our Holiday Clubs and events. His peers voted for Kallum for his hard work in helping the younger children at Holiday Club and his great support to them when they get upset or have hurt themselves. He is always on hand to comfort them, showing great empathy. His prize money will be put towards the Low Ropes equipment we purchased to give children and young people a great opportunity to learn new adventure and physical skills. Well done Kallum!
